Today, in this post, we would be covering everything you need to know about OnePlus TV. From the specifications to Comparison. We will be doing that all in this post.

OnePlus TV Q1, Q1 Pro Price, Specifications

OnePlus TV Design

The first thing that you’ll notice after taking a look at the OnePlus TV 55 Q1 and OnePlus TV 55 Q1 Pro is how really slim bezels are on this TV. Now, both of the TVs have elliptical chrome base stand which is made up of really good quality. Also, the display just pops up on a vertical spine which is being attached to the base. The company calls this setup, the OnePlus Dock. The entire weight of the TV is held on by one single screw in the middle of the base stand.

Now, since the whole TV weight is on a single screw, the TV does wobble even after a slight touch. So if you have kids at your place who likes to play inside, then you should definitely consider mounting this TV on your wall. To the back of the TV, surprisingly we see a carbon fibre pattern. Now, one of the major differences between the OnePlus TV and the OnePlus TV Pro is the soundbar. The OnePlus TV Pro comes with a sliding soundbar which slides in/out each time you power the TV on and off which looks absolutely gorgeous.

OnePlus TV Display

A TV might have the best features in the world, but if the display is not on point, the TV fails. Isn’t it? Afterall TV is more or less all about the display itself. Well, the OnePlus has done a very great job with the display on the OnePlus TV. The TV comes with VA (Vertically Aligned) Display which is 55-inch in size and is a QLED display. For those of you who don’t know about the difference between the OLED and QLED, then QLEDs are those LCD-based panels which feature quantum dots that light up with LED backlighting.

On the other hand, the OLED displays have pixels that emit their own light, hence producing a bit better picture quality. Having said that, the display also has NTSC 120% color gamut which is amazing. The TV comes with a custom-built Gamma Color Magic processor which further improve picture quality and color reproduction. All in all, the colors on the display are quite good and the display looks gorgeous overall.

OnePlus TV Sound

As we have already mentioned before, the major difference between OnePlus TV and TV Pro is the soundbar. OnePlus TV Pro comes with a sliding soundbar which looks great. In terms of sound output, both the OnePlus TV and the TV Pro does support Dolby Atmos. The regular variant of the OnePlus TV features a set of four speakers with a 50W output, which is placed at the back of the TV. On the other hand, the OnePlus TV Pro comes with a set of four full-range speakers, two tweeters, and two woofers.

The users can also tune the audio settings to as per their likings. There is also a lot of predefined User mode in the Sound Mode settings. If you have the OnePlus TV Pro, then you can also use the Soundbar as a Bluetooth speaker for your devices which is another great thing about the Pro version of the OnePlus TV.

Ports, Connectivity and Hardware

Both the OnePlus TV and the TV Pro runs on an unspecified Mediatek Processor (Yea, unspecified!) and feature four HDMI 2.0 ports, three USB ports, one composite port, an Ethernet port, and one optical port. Out of these 4 HDMI ports, 1 supports ARC. You also get Optical Audio port, standard AV ports, and an old-school antenna port. Unfortunately, the TV does not come with 3.5mm aux port.

Now, there is a removable cover on the back of the TV which gives the users access to these ports on the TV. OnePlus TVs are also Bluetooth- and Wi-Fi enabled. For those of you who were wondering, Yes, the TV also supports Chromecast out of the box.

OnePlus TV Software

Both the regular and Pro versions of the OnePlus TV comes with the Android 9 Pie out of the box. The company has also promised Android OS updates for the next three years for both TVs which sounds great. Since the OnePlus TV runs on Google Android, the users can download and install apps from the Google Play Store and can also enjoy using the Google Assistant via remote.

Like OxygenOS on OnePlus smartphones, with the TVs too, the company has pushed some custom software in the form of its OxygenPlay application which comes pre-installed with the TV. Users can also enjoy services like YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Eros Now, Hungama, Jio Cinema, and Zee5 on the OnePlus TV without any issues.

OnePlus TV Remote

The OnePlus TV Remote is hands down the best and the most marketed thing about the TVs. Though the remote does not look that appealing and may lack ergonomics. It is quite functional and a lot different from an Ordinary TV remote. For instance, the TV does not have an infrared sensor. In fact, it works over a Bluetooth connection so you need not align your remote with the TV. Now, if you have a lot of Bluetooth devices at your place, then the connection might get interference.

This remote is powered by a Li-ion battery which the company claims to work for over 3 months. Also, the users can charge this remote via USB Type C cable which is another great thing. You get dedicated remotes for services like Google Assistant, Netflix and Amazon Prime on the remote.

So that’s it guys, this was our take on Everything you need to know about OnePlus TV Q1 and Q1 Pro. Let us know your thoughts about it in the comments section down below.

The news has been breaking the internet with full of hype and rumors since the day OnePlus has announced on one of its blog posts that the company is working on a smart TV. Earlier, the specifications weren’t sure to us, but now finally as the Amazon’s OnePlus TV listing page is live, we can at least assert about the specs the product comprises of by keeping the belt of rumors aside.

OnePlus TV

According to the company’s officials, it’s confirmed that OnePlus TV is going to unveiled in India first by the end of September. And initially, it will be available only through Amazon India.

As of now, a few weeks before the expected launch, nobody knows what this smart TV will look alike, but now we have some key specifications and information in hand that would give you a small roundup of OnePlus TV.

OnePlus TV Specification

The starting variant for India is of 55 inches, which has a 4k QLED panel primarily responsible for bettering contrast, colors and black level. It’s also supported by Dolby Vision (the brand name for HDR 4K video format) that brings dynamism and sense of realism in visuals. With HDR content, you will be getting smooth color gradients, rich brightness, and high-contrast elements.

Coming to the audio department, OnePlus TV will be incorporating 8 speakers for a total output of 50 watts. Interestingly, again, the speakers are powered by Dolby Atmos that is widely popular for its sound that moves in three-dimensional space; apt for giving you chills and making you feel that you’re living in action.

In order to wrestle the big sharks in the space, here OnePlus has creatively enhanced the TV more into a smart home hub device; a far advanced than a typical smart TV. As far as the reports are concerned, OnePlus TV will be based on the Android TV operating system.

OnePlus TV Features

Since it’s confirmed that OnePlus TV is based on Google’s Android TV, it’s almost certain to have Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in. You will be getting more personalized TV experience with voice control functionalities.

The smart TV will come with a Bluetooth compatible remote that would be apt for functioning as a kind of smart home hub for other devices and services. Amazon’s page has the picture of the remote that is also tweeted by OnePlus CEO Pete Lau. Isn’t it looks a lot like Apple’s TV remote?

Seemingly, the Google Assistant logo on one of its button backed up every assumption we have made so far. However, the OnePlus logo on the remote button doesn’t reveal its use; but we guess, most likely it’s there for synchronicity and integration with OnePlus smartphone.

OnePlus TV Price

For the expected price, we couldn’t make any guess right now. Knowing that the company has been launching its products for a bit cheaper rates weighing to the mainstream rivals, OnePlus TV likely to come with a price that would make sense to the customers, unlike Apple products does. No pun intended.

Furthermore, from the latest tips, we can say OnePlus TV would be on a little affordable side compared to other manufacturers offering the same kind of spec-packed smart TVs.
